Nothing says summer like chips and dip, so to greet the heat, PDR hosted its semi-annual food competition - a dip challenge. With total creative license on what constitutes a “dip” and a “chip”, contenders competed for top rankings in taste (“I could just die and go to heaven”), texture (“Got it just right”), appearance/presentation (“Aw, that’s so pretty”), pairing (“How well does the chip work with the dip?”), innovation (overall strategy/uniqueness), and transcendence (indefinable quality).
Perry Deaners took care to judge each dip as fairly as possible, often trying dips a third and fourth time (just to be safe). While there were moments of open discussion on opinions, there were also moments of complete silence, making sure to take in the full experience of each dip.
Once the votes were in, the winning dip was Kelsey Pierson’s Spicy Feta and Greek Yogurt dip.
Honorable mentions include:
2- Anne Brockelman’s Chocolate Dip
3- Britt Ambruson’s Beet Hummus
4- Helena Leclair’s Eggplant Baba Ghanoush
5- Hayley Bouza’s Sundried Tomato and Goat Cheese Dip
